Allys Maybank, VMD
– I’ve done all kinds of medicine. Equine, large animal, small animal, exotic and fish medicine which is more cool than I ever expected. To do all that I went to the best veterinary school in the whole world, University of Pennsylvania 1984, became certified in acupuncture in 1989 by I.V.A.S, became certified in chiropractic in 1993 by A.V.C.A. and certified in aquatic animal medicine in 2005 by the Aquavet program at Woodshole, MA. Yes, I have adjusted and acupunctured fish. If you think that is amazing just imagine doing it and seeing the results. I love my profession. My most valued accomplishments? The Veterinary School Faculty’s Award for Academic Achievement and Professional Potential at graduation and galloping across Mongolia.

Tony Arre spent his time after graduation teaching Martial Arts, “Tricking” (a form of Sports Martial Arts) and Gymnastics to students of all ages. Tony happened to be out of work late last year from an injury when he came to Frontier Wellness.He was with a friend to help her bring her daughters dog in for treatment. Needless to say he was very impressed by the work we do here. Tony has always preferred using a natural approach whenever possible when it comes to his own health but had never been exposed to this as far as animals go. He has always believed in the body’s ability to heal itself. After that first visit it made perfect sense to him that the same concept applied to animals. Tony has always had both cats and dogs while growing up and loves animals of all kinds. When a position opened up here at Frontier;he applied for it and is now very excited to be a part of our team. He’s looking forward to helping all of our patients and interacting with their humans as well. Outside of work Tony is very busy raising his 1 year old nephew who he adores. He currently has 2 beautiful cats that he rescued. His hobbies include Sports Karate Gymnastics.

Nick Vince 
Nick Vince went to school for creative writing, so naturally he now works in a field entirely unrelated to that. He spent several years working at Barnes & Noble booksellers, and while he enjoyed the job (in spite of the retail environment), it wasn’t as fulfilling as he would have liked. He heard about Frontier Wellness Center from his mother, Teri, who had been taking their dog Nessa to see Dr. Maybank for several months beforehand. Since starting work here, he has found that he has really taken to the work, as he has always enjoyed a natural affinity with animals, and a comfort and confidence in handling them that translates well to being a veterinary technician. He splits his time at Frontier between working with animals and handling inventory for the office, with a strong preference for the former, but a reliable and stalwart acceptance for the latter. Nick spends his free time hanging out with Nessa, his german shepherd, at home, and has no other pets – her decision, not his. If you see Nick at Frontier, don’t be dissuaded by his grim countenance… he’s probably just thinking about purchase orders, and hoping he gets to pet a dog at some point during the day.
